The five major of the week | Youth flex their muscles | NBA
Between injuries, quarantines and poor form, it is the youth that is showing itself at the moment in the NBA.
On the back lines, James Harden was a very good option, with his two big games against the Bulls and the Pelicans. The performances of Anfernee Simons, in the absence of Damian Lillard, also deserved to be highlighted, but Darius Garland carried the Cavaliers to a perfect record, like a true conductor, while Devin Booker shines on his side, both individually and collectively.
on the wings, RJ Barrett is obvious as the Canadian has put his hand on the meetings of the Knicks in recent games, while it is Brandon Ingram who accompanies him. The Pelicans winger was well held by the Nets but he seems to have really turned a corner, in leadership but also in the « all-around » side.
Finally, under the circle, it is Joel Embiid who won again, the pivot playing at his best level.
As in the past four seasons, you can vote for the MVP of the week.
